Beware of the Aftershock…

XVI KS

There are lots of Tarot Tower moments in life… Times when we feel blown away… Surprises that come out of the blue…

Sometimes where we’re blasted in a great way… such as falling in love… and that feels good!

But there are times when our world gets rocked in not so pleasant ways…

I’ve been casting my mind back and I can think of 3 big Tarot Tower stories in my life that have shook me to the core…

I’m not going into the nitty, gritty, shitty details as I don’t think there’s much to be gained from an autopsy… corpses need burying… they don’t smell too good! Let them rot to feed the plants! 😀

But I did notice a pattern that interested me…

Each time…

There was a long slow build up… a creeping sense of dread and foreboding…

Something is coming…

Tension and unease and that itch of impatience and irritation… come on… hurry up and get here…

Much like waiting for a Thunderstorm to clear the air during an intense and muggy summer…

But even when you sense it coming… it still somehow catches you unawares and knocks you off balance…

You wibble and wobble… and then think… Ok… that wasn’t too bad… you dust yourself off and you think you are moving on…

And then… just when you think you are back to normal…

BLAMMO!!!!

HIT AGAIN!!!

KNOCKED FLAT ON YOUR ASS!!!

Where the hell did that come from?

Turns out lightening will strike twice in the same place…

Now this time… it takes you a while longer to get your breath back…

You feel ripped apart and betrayed…

You cry and feel angry and sad and sorry and bereaved and you wonder how you could have changed things or stopped it from happening…

But then… something strange happens…

You start to feel a lot clearer and more focused than you’ve felt since you can remember… you start to remember all those things that you used to enjoy that somehow quietly slipped away… they start to come back…

New opportunities present themselves…

Life suddenly seems brighter and more meaningful…

Recently I had a turn of events that were pretty shocking…

And I did feel a great sense of loss…

But then I could hear music… and  I could here just a couple of lines in my head…. repeating over and over…

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done

And that made me feel sad… but then the next two lines arrived…

But I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say

And that made me think – YEAH!!! TOO EFFING RIGHT!!!

I am glad that you are gone!

Now I feel relief!

Now I can hear my own thoughts!

Now I feel my joy!

    • Lol thanks Joanne 🙂 the thing about all that flying electricity is that is also sparks off quite a few a-ha! light bulbs 😀 I wrote this piece as part of Lyn Thurman’s October tarot/ soul writing challenge which works through the majors, writing straight to page with no edit (though now I’ve noticed some right proper clunky grammar I need to fix!! ) Anyway… Babbling stream of words, as you know, is pretty much normal for me… and didn’t really feel to be a challenge… So I decided to spend just a little time playing with the image I use for each post and that has been interesting… The posts are split between here and my other blog – No Fixed Abide… I’ve really been enjoying creating some new images and re-animating some old photos. Lol it’s just tickled me, thinking – you know what comes after the Tower don’t you? The Star! Ha! The Tower lays you on your back, so you get the best possible view!! 😀
